    Got a note from a lead broker saying they were exiting the business except for uninsurables. They said Assurant now allows agents to write business in ANY state without a NR license.

    Any of you heard about this?

    Wow Bob, I'm shocked. Can you clarify a little further?

    Wish I could. Figured the resident Assurant guru's could enlighten me.

    Here is what the email said.

    I'm a GA Assurant and have heard nothing of this sort. I don't see where it says Assurant is getting out of anything but uninsurables?

    Perhaps they just found out that they can be non-resident licensed across the country.

    Nope, the lead broker is only going to sell leads for uninsurables. He is going to write the insurables himself through Assurant.

    Perhaps I was reading too much in to it, regarding the non-res license. I do know some carriers allow overrides on sub-agents in other states without requiring the GA to have a non-res license. Maybe that is what this guy is doing. Contracting sub-agents in multiple states and collecting overrides rather than writing direct.

    You nailed it. As a GA most states, except for about 4, allow overrides off sub-agents without the GA being licensed in that state. Assurant allows this while companies like Golden Rule don't.
